Doesn't anyone here still use a fire place to warm up The House? I understand that some people live in a apartment complex and a fire place is not available, but that's how we use to keep warm before electricity was discovered. Has gotten that bad to where we now have to buy heat and appliances to stay warm? I have never lived in a snow like environment, so I can't fathom the thought or freezing. But it just seems like the most economical way to heat your home.
